, they would turn to me and say can you please tell mr. obama we're not terrorists and to stop killing our people. as if i could walk into his office and talk to him. but over the time i was in pakistan and i talked to politicians, i talked to a psychiatrist who runs a hospital where he tells stories of people literally having to travel eight hours to get any kind of mental health because of the drone attacks and there's a wide variety of people all of whom were unanimous in the fact that the drones are making the united states of america less safe because the number of enemies we were creating. >> john: i gotta say in the footage we just showed from you making the film, you are being greeted warmly. it is worth remembering that pakistan is still officially a u.s. ally. is there still a warmth among the people there toward our country or are you disturbed by a growing hostility by the pakistani people? >> well, the people i met with, and again, you know, one doesn't want to overgeneralize, the people i met with in the investigation work for the film could not have been more gracious. these

of the majority? >> well, absolutely, you're right. one of the things i loved about president obama's speech yesterday is he did the obvious thing. he stated his values clearly and unapologetically. i think if you actually say what you believe, because a lot of these people who are scared to do the right thing they say they want to do the right thing but they don't, because they fear the n.r.a. and these other groups. bottom line is if you follow your values, and you explain things to people and help them understand that you're for them, the bottom line is you're going to win. that's actually good policy and good politics, but you've got to have some faith. >> it's not just the voters in rural districts. they're scared of the money. the n.r.a.'s going to spend a ton of money against them. >> no doubt about it. no doubt about it, but see his opinion that we had some democrats who are very much in favor of the n.r.a. position and they lost, because folks who are for gun sanity came in against them. that happened in a few jurisdictions across this country. the tide is turning, but a few people

grayson is back in. my point, apparently there is a god. of and will obama exploit the manti teo store just to punish those going on-line pretending to be girls. if andiy kaufman was alive he would be wrestling his fake on-line girlfriend right now. this is view point. | [music] |. good evening. we are leading off the show with breaking news about a hostage rescue mission where civilians and possibly some americans have reportedly been killed. we will turn to what many feel is a broken american approximately see that may have killed close to 200 children. troops attacked a remote gas complex to free foreign and will algerian hostages. if you haven't heard much about this on the news it's because it doesn't involve fake girlfriends or blood doping but leob panetta said 100 were at the complex when the cud napping too -- kidnapping took place. hillary clinton i says anti-terrorism fors have been in close contact but the situation we mains fluid. >> the security of the americans held hostage is our highest priority ask we c

like death panels, and the president is not acting alone. president obama is working alongside his rich gun hating friends in hollywood, and michael bloomberg. they fail to mention he is also the mayor of new york city. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

by going completely out of their minds as humorist andy borowitz they are now accusing president obama for using his position as president to lead the country the whole earth. >> i think president obama may have this "king kong" complex developing, and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> we completely lost our checks and balances in this country. the congress needs to hold the president accountable so the decisions he's making right now. >> as i said before, i'm going to arm all my deputies, i said this about this with automatic weapons and semiautomatic weapons to fight back. i don't care what they say from washington. >> jennifer: actually, think about the demographic politics from the last election. what do the broad array of critics, what do they have in common besides the obvious. [ whistling ] they are all white they're all male. thank goodness not all white males think the way they do. the fist shakers not just rush limbaugh but those in congress, too, are made up mostly of that demographic group and those demographics mirror the nra itself. the nra's board is 80% mal

obama says all the right things, oh, on the issue of marijuana weaver got bigger fish to fry. we're not going to spend federal resources and in reality and action, he has broken a record in how many dispensaries they've done in his first turn. he head of the d.e.a. is pushing all the raised. let me me show you some bigger numbers, marijuana arrests in 2011 alone. 750,000 for marijuana about half of the arrests for just marijuana possession. that's one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds. oh, i got bigger fish to fry except by the way, president obama, president bush, president clinton, all smoked marijuana but are willing to put 750,000 people a year in jail for doing the same exact thing they did they just didn't get busted on. how about prosecuting pot? do you know that it costs us $10,400 every time somebody is arrested. if you're conservative, shouldn't you be outraged by that that we're wasting that kind of money. we waste $7 billion annually on this nonsense, understooding 800 fistula million dollars in courts costs and $3.1 billion in prison costs. it's important to get real

is rare. it's still a terrible tragedy but they take it and project it. but when obama kills people with a drone, there is no crime. >> cenk: i get that. i think the drone program is hideous, and we talk about it all the time. jon stewart made a fair point. you're talking about imaginary problems like the shark problem. >> so this is what it is. their paranoid feel of a possible distopic future prevents us from addressing our actual distopic present. we cannot discuss the gung deaths that are happening every year because a few of us must remain vigilant begins the rise of a imaginary hitler. >> cenk: you're worried about the imagethe imaginary sharks. i don't want to say it in a dismissive way but you're talking about the government taking over when they haven't and we have real deaths. isn't that a fair point alex? >> no, it's not a fair point. they've taken the guns worldwide. in chicago and new york when they took the guns crime rates went up. the issue is humans at a primitive level. myself included. i recognize from the roman times to the founding of the nation, it was done to

? >> well, this is where someone like president obama needs to actually have an overarching energy policy. it's easy to say all of the above. but it's pretty clear if you like to have more research--not just renewables, but more basic research and development investment on energy. if you have cheap natural gas it blunts that interest as well. you need to be able to sustain advance the next generation that we'll need town the line. >> jennifer: all right, we need leadership and policy. this will be a very interesting second term item. andrew revkin trying to sort out fact from fiction from the. thank you so much for joining us frommed in "the war room." coming up, guaranteed to enlighten the progressive mind and then one other story by brett erlich. >> coming up, ana romney diss "dancing with the stars." don't go away. inauguration this monday morning at 10 eastern only on current tv. at cepacol we've heard people are going to extremes to relieve their sore throats. oh, okay, you don't need to do that. but i don't want any more of the usual lozenges and i want new cooling relief! ugh
